ICB posted a great piece on the movie sensation of this year - "The Avengers" - which just came out on Friday, May 5th.
"Last night we went to see The Avengers. It’s been some time since I’ve been to a sold out show at the theatre. The last time I was at a movie where the audience applauded at the end just might have been the when the first Star Wars movie came out. While watching The Avengers I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t find any anti-American undertones. Then as the movie progressed I remember thinking to myself, “Is anyone else picking up the Pro American undertones I’m seeing? Could this main stream big budget Hollywood movie actually be saying America is good?”
So, having avoided ICB's spoiler alert (mostly) I'm headed to EXPERIENCE the film this week.
I look forward to seeing it!
